Getting Yelled At By Your Mom Is So Scary, That We Decided To Turn The Things She Says Into Horror Movie Posters

Whenever you do something to piss off your mom or whenever she’s in a bad mood, chances are she’ll start to express her anger with a few particular phrases. For instance, you’ll hear her say something like “Te calmas o te calmo,” or “Vas a ver cuando lleguemos a la casa.” And yes, sometimes it’s scary AF when she says these things to you. We wondered, “What if these scary ‘mom phrases’ were turned into actual scary movie posters?” So we created a few.

Check them out for yourself, and hopefully you don’t have any nightmares.

If you love scary movies, check out this flick about a mother who angrily refuses to call her son by his first name.

You probably hear this from your mom almost every single day.

If you’re more into thrillers, this movie will have you shaking with goosebumps.

As soon as you hear this, you know damn well to immediately relax and behave.

And things only get more intense with this scary flick:

This phrase is more common when you’re misbehaving somewhere out in public with your mom and she’s unable to punish you right then and there.

Warning: this one will probably give you nightmares.

And if you’re familiar with this scary-ass phrase, then you must know it doesn’t mean she’s offering you any hot chocolate or tea before you go to sleep.

You may not be able to sleep if you watch this movie:

You’ll definitely hear this coming from your mom whenever she thinks you’re crying for no good reason… or whenever you’re crying at all.

If you’re a fan of movies that are based on true stories, then this one is a must:

If you don’t want to hear this scary threat coming from your mom, then don’t disturb her and ask her to help you look for something because she’ll just assume you’re too lazy to look for it yourself.

If this one doesn’t make you scream in fear…

Yup, that’s a threat.

…then this one will definitely send tingles down your spine.

Tip: don’t take this phrase literally…that’s if you don’t want your mom to get mad at you.

After watching this movie, you won’t ever want to go out late at night. ?

There’s nothing scarier than coming home late at night, past your curfew, to an angry mom.

You may not want to go out AT ALL after watching this one:

If your mom says this to you, it’s highly advised that you don’t test her.

Just be prepared to be scared because this movie is no joke.

In other words, she isn’t dumb so don’t even think about trying to lie to her.

The scariest thing of all is…anything that happens in this movie can happen in REAL LIFE.

This phrase applies to many scenarios. For example, if you don’t wash the dishes when your mom asks you to, then you won’t be able to go out with your friends when you try to ask her for permission.

But no matter how scary all of these phrases might sound, your mom only says them to you because she loves you.

…well at least that’s what she says. *nervous laughter*

We Finally Know What Jennifer Lopez Thinks About ‘Selena: the Series’ on Netflix

We Finally Know What Jennifer Lopez Thinks About ‘Selena: the Series’ on Netflix

Netflix’s new show, “Selena: The Series” is set to premiere this Friday and everyone who was a fan of the incomparable Selena Quintanilla is beside themselves with excitement.

We don’t know a ton about the upcoming series yet, just the little information that Netflix has released about the general plot and cast. Per Netflix, the series will focus on Selena as she “comes of age and realizes her dreams”.

It will also focus on her family and, of course, her music. According to reports, we also know that the Quintanilla family is involved in the series. Relative unknown Christian Serratos will be playing La Reina herself.

But what we’ve all been dying to know since the new series was announced in 2018 is: What does JLo think?

Lopez famously played Selena to great critical acclaim in 1997. Well, folks, we finally have an answer! Lopez appeared on the series’ official Instagram account to give the upcoming series her full support.

In a video posted to the account, Lopez talks about the new series. “Guys, I don’t know if you’ve heard about this new Selena series on Netflix,” Lopez says, laughing a bit because yes we all know and we literally can’t wait. “Playing Selena was kind of a landmark moment in my career. And I was so excited when I saw the trailer and heard about it.”

She also added that she thinks the new show will introduce tons of new fans to Selena’s story and her music.

“It’s a great way for this generation to get to know Selena,” Lopez continued on the Instagram video. “I love Selena. She’s such a big part of my life and my career. And I can’t wait to see it!”

Jennifer Lopez famously starred in the original movie about the Queen of Tejano music in 1997. At the time of its release, the movie was a critical and commercial hit. It’s no wonder that, in the time of spin-offs and reboots, Netflix decided to cash in on the devotion of Quintanilla’s built-in audience.

Christian Serratos is definitely feeling the pressure when it comes to portraying Selena after Lopez’s pivotal 1997 performance.

Addressing the pressure of tackling her own version of Selena Quintanilla after Jennifer Lopez’s version has become so popular over the years, Serratos said she’s trying not to let the pressure get to her.

“Sometimes I do have to remind myself that I can’t please everybody because I’m human,” she said in an interview with The Big Ticket. “But the thing I tried to do first and foremost was to honestly portray her spirit because I think that’s what made her so lovely and so iconic.”

‘Saved By the Bell’ Reboot Mocks Selena Gomez’s Kidney Transplant and Francia Raísa Thinks It’s Not Funny

‘Saved By the Bell’ Reboot Mocks Selena Gomez’s Kidney Transplant and Francia Raísa Thinks It’s Not Funny

It appears that the Saved By the Bell reboot is off to a bad start. The much anticipated NBCUniversal’s Peacock series garnered tons of negative press over the weekend for making what many viewers considered inappropriate jokes about Selena Gomez’s health struggles.

One of the offensive scenes in question had two characters arguing about whether Gomez’s kidney donor was “Justin Bieber’s mom” or Demi Lovato. Later in the episode, a wall was spray-painted with the words: “Does Selena Gomez even have a kidney?”

Fans flocked to social media to condemn the program for making light of Gomez’s harrowing health journey.

“I can officially say that this generation is full of some sick and insensitive ppl,” wrote one Selena stan on Twitter. “The fact that if her surgery went wrong, she wouldnt be here today. and a whole ass show producer thought it was okay to mock her for it? the script writers too? what??” Many similar sentiments were echoed on social media.

The blowback became so bad that NBCUniversal was forced to apologize for the tasteless joke. They have since removed the “jokes” from the episode.

“We apologize. It was never our intention to make light of Selena’s health. We have been in touch with her team and will be making a donation to her charity, The Selena Gomez Fund for Lupus Research at USC,” they said in a statement.

Selena Gomez’s kidney donor, fellow actress Francia Raísa, addressed NBCUniversal’s apology via Twitter. “Appreciate the apology but let’s not forget about the donors that potentially felt offended and dismissed from the spray paint written on the wall,” she said.

Selena Gomez has been candid about the trauma she’s endured over the years due to her autoimmune disease, lupus. Gomez’s lupus forced her to undergo chemotherapy and eventually, seek a kidney transplant.

“I had arthritis. My kidneys were shutting down. My mentality was just to keep going,” Selena revealed in a 2017 interview with the Today Show. “That was it. And I didn’t want to ask a single person in my life and that was the day I came home, when I found out, and [Raísa] volunteered and did it.”

But Gomez’s kidney transplant wasn’t the end of her health journey, both mental and physical.

After her surgery, Gomez struggled with body image issues, specifically surrounding her surgery scar. In a recent Instagram post, Gomez revealed that it took her a while to become confident in her own skin after her surgery.

“When I got my kidney transplant, I remember it being very difficult at first showing my scar,” she wrote. “I didn’t want it to be in photos, so I wore things that would cover it up. Now, more than ever, I feel confident in who I am and what I went through.”
